Ok… I've been having some serious yeast issues lately. I went to PP at the beginning of January for a general checkup/pap. I asked her to check me for yeast because I'd been a little itchy. She found some, gave me diflucan and all was good. Until I about two weeks later when I noticed that obnoxious burning sensation again. I was going in to get my IUD inserted, instead I came away with another dose of diflucan for my yeasties. Everything was fine again for about a week..
And now, I'm itchy again. I never really have the "typical" yeast infection symptoms – it's mostly just general itchiness around the vulva – no discharge to speak of.
What the hell is wrong with me that I've had three yeast infections in a month? Or are they not even yeasties? The clinician at PP didn't see any evidence of BV, and I'm asymptomatic for it anyway. I've been tested for STI's – all negative.
Any insight? What can I do? I don't want to live off of diflucan!
